The crash occurred just after I opened Outlook Express and began composing a
message for a newsgroup. And was the same nature I reported yesterday in a
post entitled Event Log Error Message.

The blue screen showed the following:

Stop:0x000000F4(0x00000003,0x830B9020,0xB20B9194,0x805FA7A8

The Event Log contained:

Event Type: Error
Event Source: ESENT
Event Category: General
Event ID: 489
Date: 8/25/2005
Time: 3:48:46 AM
User: N/A
Computer: PRIMARY
Description:
wuauclt (1456) An attempt to open the file
"G:\WINDOWS\SoftwareDistribution\DataStore\DataStore.edb" for read only
access failed with system error 3 (0x00000003): "The system cannot find the
path specified. ". The open file operation will fail with error -1023
(0xfffffc01).

--- From yesterdays message ----

No wonder it crashed. I have no G: drive on my system according to My
Computer or Disk Management so, like J. Buffett's tattoo, where it came from
I haven't a clue. Is there a remedy for this? Perhaps a registry edit or
even a repair/install?

Searching the registry via regedit reveals numerous entries for G: but I am
leery of messing around with them without some guidance.

OK, Will,

I have looked at the link you supplied. It seems to apply to F4 after
returning from standby and having XP installed on a slave drive. Neither is
the case here. XP is on Disk 0 (Master) and never goes into standby as far
as I know -- at least I told it not to in Power Options. Also, I have
Automatic Updates turned off. So that leaves me wondering what ESENT's
purpose is.

I have added no hardware in a long time so that doesn't seem to apply.

I am still puzzled by the reference to G: in the Event Log error indication
and in the registry. I've no G: installed, only C: , D: and E: on Disk 0
and F: on Disk 1.

Still searching for an answer. Oh yes, I did replace the ribbon cables to
the disks as suggested by the article.

Thanks again for your interest.
